Library and Resource Center

Committed to Mercy's mission of nurturing life-long learners and global citizens, who are curious about and engaged with the world, and who act from a base of faith and compassion, Mercy High School Resource Center/Library actively supports each Mercy student in becoming a self-directed reader and competent user of information.
